How to prevent a Christmas disaster

Gay men love Christmas because it involves shopping, planning, creativity, décor, entertaining, parties, cocktails, wrapping gifts, and kisses under the mistletoe.

The Christmas season can get extremely busy. From shopping for holiday gifts to figuring out what dish to bring to a holiday potluck party, there’s always something that needs to be worked out to ensure the celebrations go off without a hitch.

If you’re planning to be home for the holidays, don’t forget these important details:

  • Gift-wrapping. If you don’t already have a gift-wrapping room or gift-wrapping centre, your gay card should be taken away immediately! Always have extra boxes, bags, tissue, ribbons, bows and tape to help get you, or anyone else get their gift wrapping done, even late on Christmas Eve night. A well-wrapped gift is always appreciated just a little bit more.
  • Have extra beverages on hand. Cardinal rule for all gay men. Always have a well-stocked liquor cabinet throughout the year. This includes a few bottled of each red and white wine, a bottle of bubbles in the refrigerator, a case of beer, and the standard spirits of Stolichnaya vodka, gin, dark and light rum, and perhaps a bottle of scotch. Never make ice in your freezer; always buy fresh-bagged ice.
  • Know who’s coming for dinner. When you send out the dinner invitations remember to follow up to find out how many guests each are bringing. You’ll need enough place settings, cocktails, wine, and dessert for everyone. It’s also important to check to make sure your guests don’t have any food allergies.

There you have it. Three things you can do to help prevent a Christmas disaster!
